Happy Birthday, Nikki

Today would have been Nakhia 'Nikki' Williams' 30th birthday. She and her twin sister Nicole would have been celebrating it together.

But unfortunately that won't happen because some scumbag who's still at large right now felt he had the power to take her life. And that has left a void in the lives of all who knew her.

A family is missing a loved one.

The people who called her 'friend' miss her terribly.

Her neighbors who she greeted with a friendly wave, a hello and a smile no longer hear or see that.

A community mourns for you.

And a creative, artistic soul has been extinguished.

Happy birthday, Nikki. We'll never forget you, nor will we give up the quest of finding the persons who did this to you and seeing justice carried out.

I wish for peace for Nikki's family.

I also wish for capital punishment for Nikki's killers. To hell with them, and to hell with anyone who knows what happened to Nikki and is staying silent, for they, too, are murderers.

I got misty-eyed reading this post. This time of year is tough to those who have lost loved ones to this senseless violence.

I pray for comfort for Nikki's family and friends.
